Would you like me to? Got another lined up? In the vain of octopuppy, here's a fun one --> 238 */* 222 = 444

Your proof is accepted ;)
Sorry, no other mystery op lined up at the moment, been busy with preparing and now hosting a new mafia game. Plus octopuppy's CtC.

Leaving it unsolved so others can enjoy then!

Adding plainglazed's correct clue:
4 */* 2 = 5
12 */* 17 = 28
30 */* 10 = 36
100 */*	93 = 186
42 */* 35 = 72
100 */* 21 = 116
12 */* 11 = 22
19 */* 29 = 48
41 */* 31 = 72
11 */* 18 = 28
238 */* 222 = 444
------------------
48 */* 73 = ?

As he solved it, I did not post any more clues, but if anyone still wants to solve it, I will post more.

The solution was never explained and I am sadly stumped. I have a theory about varrying bases based on the given numbers but still no solution.

You are right, the solution was not explained and the challenge is still open.

I'll continue to post examples - adding one now. Also, if you want to test your theory you can tell me a pair "(a,b)" and I will tell you "a */* b"

4 */* 2 = 5
12 */* 17 = 28
30 */* 10 = 36
100 */*	93 = 186
42 */* 35 = 72
100 */* 21 = 116
12 */* 11 = 22
19 */* 29 = 48
41 */* 31 = 72
11 */* 18 = 28
238 */* 222 = 444
11 */* 21 = 30
------------------
48 */* 73 = ?

42 */* 35 = 72
100 */* 21 = 116
12 */* 11 = 22
19 */* 29 = 48
41 */* 31 = 72
11 */* 18 = 28
238 */* 222 = 444
11 */* 21 = 30
9 */* 13 = 20
------------------

How about 1 */* 0, 10 */* 0 and 1 */* 1?


Hi k-man. I've added one of the three in the table below.

4 */* 2 = 5
12 */* 17 = 28
30 */* 10 = 36
100 */*	93 = 186
42 */* 35 = 72
100 */* 21 = 116
12 */* 11 = 22
19 */* 29 = 48
41 */* 31 = 72
11 */* 18 = 28
238 */* 222 = 444
11 */* 21 = 30
9 */* 13 = 20
1 */* 1 = 2
------------------
48 */* 73 = ?
EDIT: missed the example.

Spoiler for For the other 2
